The Hair Tie that Doubles as a Bracelet

I don't know about you, but regardless of what jewelry I'm wearing, I almost always have an ugly hair tie on my wrist, 'Just in case'. Just in case it rains, just in case my daughter thinks I'm Rapunzel and decides to climb my hair, just in case the weather in the UK dares to go over 20 degrees and I get the teeniest bit hot.

I read an article a while back about these very chic looking hair ties that double as bracelets made by a brand called Goody but I haven't been able to find them, anywhere! Pretty aren't they?

Then I stumbled upon these beauties over at Anthropologie. I tried to convince myself that I would be one stop closer to yummy mummyness with these on my wrist instead of a scabby hair elastic, but I just couldn't part with £12 for a few hairbands! That's almost a week's worth of Starbucks after all!!!


Thank goodness for H&M! I found these almost identical hair ties for just £1.99! Hurrah!!


Then whilst having another browse in the Anthropologie sale ( I can't keep out of that place!!!) I found a packet hidden away in the corner, on sale for £3! Yes, the quality is superior to the H&M ones which have already frayed a bit at the edges, but would I pay £12 for a packet armed with this additional information? Erm, no!



Having done a little bit of research online, I discovered quite a few similar hair ties from Etsy seller Mane Message HERE!

What do you think? Will you be trading in your trusty hair elastics for these?

    1. I found these on eBay but only in silver ( I really wanted gold!) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Goody-Doublewear-Double-Wear-2-in-1-Ponytailer-OR-Bracelet-GOLD-OR-SILVER-U-PICK-/120942845555?pt=US_Hair_Accessories&var=&hash=item1c28c15e73#ht_745wt_952

  2. I too have the ugly hair tie continuously on my wrist, I have 2 though as I have thicker hair. Miss TC has taken to having one on hers too, so cute, she can put one on one handed!
    I shall take a look at these for future reference, nursery starting soon, gotta look like I'm making an effort instead of grabbing the first thing I see whilst flying out the door x

    1. Ahh so sweet that your little one copies you!! I have really thick hair too and I think the Anthropologie ones seem to work best, the H&M one isn't as stretchy
